TESTIMONIALS

Tina F from Brisbane, Australia

I was concerned about my hernia and wanted to get the operation done as soon as possible and went through Stunning Makeovers to organise it for me.

Their service was great.  Trust and honesty is necessary in such a big step to have surgery overseas.  Paul definitely earned that on the follow up to the trip.  He was professional, friendly and prompt. 

Dr Theera was great, team were friendly. 

Jippy was a nurse I will never forget, her English was good, her humour and confidence in her job made me relax... the others were lovely. Beautiful and friendly staff and would definitely recommend. 

The first consultation and all medical checks went so fast and smooth, that made my visit all worth it!  Never would that all happen as fast if I did it in Australia

Hospital facilities were amazing, great views, and value for money and more.

Take a partner for support. I went alone and realised that you definitely need your personal support system. 

I would return for more surgery and have already recommended Stunning Makeovers.

Nina Q from Auckland New Zealand

Overall, I like the hospital, shopping and met new friends as I travelled in a group arranged by Stunning Makeovers.

I chose Stunning Makeovers for my arrangements because of its price, good advertising and prompt response to my enquiry.

I would consider returning to Thailand for future surgery and will recommend others to Stunning Makeovers. I find the dental service amazing.

I just want to thank you Paul for setting up this business to help us and make everything so well organised so that we don’t need to worry about anything.

Robyn C from Auckland, New Zealand

Dr Theera was easy to consult with.  He advised and recommended, but did not push.  

Both my friend and I emphasised we just wished to ‘look good’ for our age …….He described the procedure and answered questions openly.

The nursing and support staff were very welcoming and professional, very gentle and caring.   

The Filipino nurses had a better command of the English language so were easier to communicate with. There was certainly no shortage of nursing staff and therefore a lot of care and attention.

The service provided was second to none.  We were taken directly to the International Patient desk and well looked after from there.

Vejthani Hospital was a well appointed hospital – more like a 1st class hotel. Very impressive and comfortable waiting areas.  

I was asked to undergo blood tests, chest x-ray, ECG and many blood pressure tests before being accepted for the surgery.

At Vejthani Hospital for a very nominal cost to us we also had appointments (and follow up appointment) with a Cardiologist just to be on the safe side. We were impressed that this specialist treatment was made available to us.

I am happy that the procedure I have done should allow me to be comfortable to continue in the work force for the next 7-8 years.  At that stage (age 70) I will probably be ready to retire, so probably will not return for more cosmetic surgery.

I will recommend Stunning Makeovers and have been doing so since my return.

Stunning Makeovers organised everything for us and made the whole process/holiday so easy.

Obviously best prices had been negotiated and considered the experience and results excellent value.

I am happy with my results and the whole experience.  Albeit my recovery being a bit slow – but came right almost immediately once I stopped a medication I was on.  Dr Theera did tell me my healing would be slow.

Anyway nothing stopped us once I came right. We certainly had a fantastic time.

Naturally I am promoting Stunning Makeovers where I am asked, and this is a question most people have asked me.

Really appreciate the time you have taken with us.   Personally I found it very reassuring that you were readily available by telephone.

I would suggest clients take some headwear to the hospital (shawl/pashmina) to cover bandages and bruising/swelling.  It is a long walk through the Hotel to the elevators and can cause some embarrassment.

Breakfast at the hotel was included and was fantastic once I was ready to mingle with the other diners. 

For the average NZ and Australian woman, massages, visits to the manicurist and hairdresser are all luxuries few of us part-take on a regular basis.  I found the prices of the pampering just so affordable.   

Yvette B from Queensland Australia

I liked the fact that Stunning Makeovers is a NZ based company as it seemed genuine and

Paul’s fast response to my emails were amazing. I am very satisfied with the service and the whole process was so easy.

My surgeon Dr Theera was really good he explained everything well and he was very friendly so I felt comfortable

The nursing staff were awesome they were all really lovely and looked after me well.The hospital facilities are good and clean. My hospital room was beautiful and very clean.

I would definitely return for further surgery and recommend Stunning Makeovers to others  because they make everything hassle free and it gives you peace of mind as surgery can be very a very daunting experience.

Ngaire S from Hamilton, New Zealand

We chose Stunning Makeovers because it is a NZ based company and we were able to meet Paul face to face and were not continually pursued as I experienced from a different site with a non New Zealand company.

I am satisfied with Stunning Makeovers.

My doctor was extremely relaxed and was easy to understand, All the nursing and support staff were excellent. I will return for a new set of dentures within the next two years hopefully as Robyn said the dentist Stunning Makeovers arranged was extremely thorough.

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers service over others as Paul is helpful and can be met personally if required.  This gave me confidence rather than just a voice over the phone.

I am happy for you to give my phone number to future clients of yours if they wish to speak or meet if practical to assist them in feeling confident they are making a good move.

Deborah F from Brisbane Australia

Excellent service from the time the courteous driver picked us up at the hotel until the discharge. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. 

The organisation by Paul McGowan at Stunning Makeovers and Yuri the coordinator at the hospital were faultless. Also their follow up and kindness was much appreciated. 

The hospital is modern and spotlessly clean. All the staff are very attentive and caring. My surgeon, Dr. Theera Yangyuen was very helpful and efficient in all my appointments and was very on time. The Nurses and Staff of the “Grand Wing” Floor 10, have my utmost thanks and gratitude. I will return in the future. 

Max P from Wellington, New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers because they have an excellent website and Paul was very trustworthy and helpful

I was really sceptical at first, but the website and Paul’s willingness to communicate made me feel well taken care of! 

I’ve never seen the quality and presentation of a hospital like it in my own country!

I will recommend Stunning Makeovers to others and know heaps of my friends in NZ who would respond really positively to your website if you were able to cater to trans people specifically, especially with my endorsement. 

The nurses were really great, especially Andrea!

Sonya A from Hamilton, New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers because you send people to Thailand and other companies didn’t. 

I am satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service Paul - great

The Surgeon was very nice and the nursing and support staff were amazing. The hospital facilities are very nice

LH from Auckland, New Zealand

I had my nose operated on something I have wanted since I was 3 years old. 

As it was important for me that I got everything right. Dr. Theera is an amazing, caring surgeon. I would recommend to anyone to have their surgery done by Dr. Theera – I‘m even coming back for more :).

I had really great support with patient co-ordination (Yuri & Tee), the nurses were great too.

Debra H from Auckland New Zealand

I choose Stunning Makeovers because they are NZ based. Stunning Makeovers gave excellent service.  Always able to be contacted and very well organised

Dr Theera was excellent - very calm and professional. The nursing and support staff were

excellent in all areas. World class. Friendly, helpful, dedicated. The nurses were excellent, organised, prompt and friendly

The hospital facilities were excellent

Sonia B from Australia

The surgeon was so kind and professional, best surgeon ever and the nursing and support staff were so friendly and helpful. Even when I got a bit stressed out at times they were always there with a bright smile. The hospital facilities were clean, tidy and modern

So happy with my ….. and the overall experience, I’m off again in May with my sister this time. I recommend Stunning Makeovers to my family and friends and everyone. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner. 

I am 100% satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service. It couldn’t have gone better. 

Penelope M from

The team who welcomed me at the International Desk were very kind and helpful.  Each time I met these ladies, I was always made very special.  The ward staff  were also very helpful, kind and considerate. Extremely good care following surgery by the doctor, nurses and aides who were very kind and involved.

To sum it up, it was a wonderful adventure, process and outcome. Thanks to all who made it so great. 

Jay B from New Zealand

I am very happy with the procedures and care received.  Vejthani Hospital has excellent facilities and all the staff was excellent.

I was very spoiled during my 4 days stay and would like to recommend Vejthani Hospital to anyone.

Valerie R from New Zealand

I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers services. I was very impressed with the surgeon; he was extremely professional and polished which inspired confidence. My results were better than I had imagined they could be especially the tummy tuck. He provided an extremely high standard of care from pre op to follow up visits.

The nursing and support staff were always courteous, helpful and professional. I was given an excellent level of care and never had to wait when any request was made of them. Pain relief was offered regularly and I never had to ask for it.  My comfort was maintained at all times. Vejthani Hospitalprovided excellent service even the van driver! The facilities were modern and clean, up to date equipment, as good if not better than I have experienced in any New Zealand or UK private hospital.

Considering the serious nature of surgery; the facilities and care provided were of an excellent standard. The cost was very reasonable. I was very impressed with the surgeon and the anaesthesiologist and felt confident that I was in competent hands during my lengthy surgery.

I would most definitely return, if I wanted more surgery/dental treatment.

 

Jenny H from New Zealand

The surgeon and his team were great not to mention the nursing staff was fantastic as well. In addition, the service was great and the facilities were lovely and clean.

I would return for more surgery and will recommend Stunning Makeovers.

Ultimately, I was very happy with Stunning Makeovers service.  

Nicki E from Whangarei, New Zealand

The surgeon was awesome. The nurses and support staff were excellent as they were not only helpful but quick to answer bell calls.Moreover, the service was perfect and very good pain management.

I definitely would return for more surgery/dental treatment.

I already have as I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery. I recommended Stunning Makeovers to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

I was very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers as they were very organized and I had a great time in Thailand.

 

Sarah B from Tasmania, Australia

The surgeon was amazing!The staff and the hospital were so kind and caring. I felt very safe. 

I would definitely return there for more surgery, if I were ever planning on getting anything done. I definitely will recommend Stunning Makeovers to others. My experience in Bangkokhas not only changed my body but has made me open my eyes to so much! It's changed my life. 

Overall, I am extremely happy with the surgery.

Maeline M from New Zealand

The surgeon, nursing and support staff, service and facilities were awesome.

I would return for more surgery and will recommend Stunning Makeovers to others as the hospital was great.

I had an awesome surgeon, nurses were great, staff was helpful, all the services went smoothly and the facilities were amazing!

Yes I will recommend Stunning Makeovers and I have been and so many people want to go now because I had such an awesome experience.

 

Megan L from New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers becasue I knew the care and quality of work would be far superior to going on my own. I also decided based on online testimonials on the stunning makeovers website and that it's based in New Zealand.

The experience in Bangkok, at Vejthani and the hotel were fantastic. Everything was organised so well. 

Dr Theera was fantastic, at the consult he explained everything in detail, answered my questions and didn't rush me. While I was in hospital I was checked on everyday and every 3 days after being discharged. I was given plenty of information on how to care for scars etc. the results are still early days but already are amazing. 

Fantastic hospital staff, the nurses were always checking on me, I never felt like I was being a bother, not only were they amazing in quality of care but also friendly and great to chat to about everyday stuff including tourist tips while in Bangkok which I appreciated. If I was in pain they were quick to administer pain relief. They really went above and beyond, I can say the same for the international co-ordinators. 

The hospital more than met my expectations. Far better rooms than I would ever see here in New Zealand. My favourite was the balcony off my  hosptial room, I couldn't leave my bed for 3 days so it was a godsend for me, my friend would open the doors so I could feel the warmth and watch lightning storms. The bottles of water always on hand were a great thing too. 

I would absolutely return for more surgery or dental treatment - 100% yes.  
 
I would definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers. I prefer the safety net of people who I can trust to provide me with trusted surgeons and hospitals, based on that I would recommend Stunning Makeovers.

 

Megan from Timaru, New Zealand
Dr Theera did a fantastic job. Recovery is going well, I am 100% happy with my breast augmentation.
 
I was a bit thrown when he recommended a mini tuck instead of full. I knew things could change at consult but expected maybe lipo or different way of doing breast augmentation. I hadn't read up on mini tucks and I had to make the choice at the consult. I decided to trust my surgeon. 
 
My abdomen looks a lot better than it did before. I wasn't expecting perfection but am hoping it'll flatten out after the swelling reduces. The level of care was amazing, if I ever needed something in the future I would go back to Vejthani. 
 
I chose Stunning Makeovers based on online reviews, testimonials on the Stunning Makeovers website and because it's based in New Zealand.

Tina from Australia

I chose to travel with a group that was coming up as once I decided to go ahead I wanted to go as soon as possible but not by myself.

I was so impressed with the clear information and what a great resource of information in the patient travel pack, I felt very reassured!

Everything was very well organised and clear instructions given.

Once I got to Thailand I felt very well taken care of. At the hospital everything happened very swiftly and professionally. The nurses were all very lovely, the hospital itself and the facilities are very clean and lovely Decor.

I would highly recommend Stunning Makeovers and definitely recommend a group tour as our Coordinator Mary made the whole experience enjoyable with her local knowledge, guidance and support.

I made some lovely new friends and overall it was a very positive experience. If I was ever to have more surgery/dental work done, it would only be with Stunning Makeovers. Thank you for providing such a great service! :-)

UPDATE

Back in OZ and after a good sleep feeling great!

I can only highly recommend the service you provide. Everything just fell into place and was so well organized. I felt safe and looked.

All the staff were wonderful and Mary is an amazing asset to your company. I will miss our lovely long breakfasts with all of us sitting together and picking Mary's brain for information about Bangkok.

 She was wonderful, patiently providing us with local knowledge and never stopped smiling despite our many questions.

I would highly recommend going in a group, as we had some lovely times together and it was great discussing everyone's progress and the feeling of support in the group.

 So overall a great experience, so much better than I could've imagined :-)

 I would like to thank you and your staff for providing such a great service!

The initial communication with Stunning Makeovers was really good when I made my enquiry which is why I chose Stunning Makeovers.

 

My support person at the hospital was JR on my first day. He was amazing and explained everything. The hospital was very good and clean. Food was also good.

 

I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service.

 

I would definitely return for more surgery and definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers for any surgery. I had a great experience. My surgeon is amazing.

Donna P from Tauranga, New Zealand

My friend had recommended Stunning Makeovers to me. All the staff and international support team where great. The service was fantastic and well above expected.

Service was great. It was good to have all the shuttles pre booked   Nice to get messages after surgery

Dr Theera was great and he did a great job and was very reassuring.

I found the hotel was in an excellent spot once you got to know the city. I would certainly stay there again and the staff where great.

I’m very pleased and looking to come back. 

Sarah L from Auckland, New Zealand

When I contacted Stunning Makeovers from their website with an enquiry they responded more promptly than the other company I approached.

The surgeon was good. His actual surgical work seems great; I'm happy with the results so far.

The nursing staff were very friendly and competent. The hospital's service was great, always very organized and fast with great facilities; very clean and modern. Overall a good experience - the international patient care team were especially helpful. 

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers to others consideringit was cosmetic surgery in a foreign country. Organizing it was a fairly easy and stress-free process through Stunning Makeovers.

Nicky M from Christchurch, New Zealand

I am really happy with everything that was done, Dr Theera is very talented. He is also very respectful.

Recovery was fairly quick. The augmentation was painful particularly on the one side where I had a cyst removed but after a couple of days the recovery was good, when I was able to manage the pain myself. The nurses and the nurse manager were lovely.

I am now just waiting on swelling to go down which is normal however I am still very happy with the results to date. Even after less than 3 weeks following surgery I can already enjoy life without some of the worries I used to have.

As for Stunning Makeovers I am very impressed when everything you organised and did for me. Your support knowing you were there was very much appreciated. Also going to another country for surgery can create doubt as to validity but I never felt that with Stunning Makeovers.

The hotel was amazing. I would go back to Bangkok just for the hotel. It certainly exceeded my expectations and I think it is a great end to the journey being looked after and cared for like the hotel staff did and you organised.

Overall I am very impressed and thankful for changing my life.

When I started enquiring with makeover specialists, Stunning Makeovers showed the most commitment to helping me, reassurance to my decisions and strength through communication and support helped me get through and achieve what I have. I trusted Stunning Makeovers and staff, which is not easily given lol!

I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers. They exceeded my expectation. Follow up care affirmed this.

Dr Theera is very talented. I trusted his recommendations and I am extremely happy with his work and the results. He is also very respectful and considerate. The nursing staff were lovely, kind and patient. The support staff were also very kind and supportive. Lanee in international was lovely. I will not forget her. I was also given a complimentary face treatment by the nurse manager who I also really liked. I hope one day I get to see these people again.

The service was very good - especially the transport to and from hotel and hospital. I felt like it has also been taken very seriously and I definitely didn't feel like just another patient or number.

The hospital facilities were good - impressed with the coffee shops and pharmacy, everything you could want at a hospital even as a visitor.

I definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers for reasons stated.

Colleen from Whangarei, New Zealand

I chose Stunning Makeovers after I researched a couple of places, but had some good feedback from a lady who I used to work with who had used Stunning Makeovers and she was really happy with the results.

 Stunning Makeovers service has been excellent, no complaints. Very supportive.

Dr Theera was great. I found him a little hard to understand at times but overall very good. He was very thorough and explained everything well. I felt in good hands. 

The nursing and support staff were lovely. Very respectful and would do anything for me. They couldn’t have been any better...fabulous. I had very little pain as they managed it very well.

The hospital facilities were outstanding. Very clean. Like a 5 star hotel.

I enjoyed my stay, everything was excellent. The pick ups from and to airport and hospital appointments were always on time and excellent.

The supportive emails I received from Jen and yourself (Paul) were great also. 

I would absolutely recommend Stunning Makeovers to others. My experience was so good that I definitely will be recommending Stunning Makeovers. 

Thank you for all your help and support which made my experience as good as it was. I really appreciate it.
